    Luis Garrido

    Since I was a little child, I loved to go to the farm with my dad. I worked with the cows and rode my horse, and I always felt the love for the animals. When I finished high school, I went to Veterinary school in the Domnican Republic. This my career and I can't see working in any other profession. Love, Luis

    Melissa Dicent

    Nothing makes me happier than to be around animals. After many years of working in the corporate world, I finally pursued my dreams of working in the veterinary field. I recently completed my AS degree in Veterinary Technology and now I spend my days nursing animals, educating clients, and working with an incredible team to bring the best possible care to every animal that walks through our doors. Every day brings new challenges and looking into their big brown (or green, or blue) innocent eyes, I strive to do my best to make their visit as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

    Andres Izquierdo

    Some of my values in life are integrity, compassion for others and maintaining a positive attitude all the time. My beliefs and values lead me to a role in the veterinary field. I want to perform and be as incredible as my pets "think" I am. Mastering my skills as a technician and eventually a Veterinarian will allow me to provide top quality care for those in need.
